BMW’s All-New X2

by Mike Hunter

This newest line by BMW was born out of the success other manufacturers are having with this small crossover class. The BMW X2 fills a void for BMW in that it is an economical and sporty option targeting those who are more active. 

The 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder, 16-valve, 228-hp engine is tucked away to provide power and fuel economy. In a small-sized crossover, there is need for a bit of pull and power — which this model delivers.

The ambient lighting includes door handle-area lighting, illuminated driver and front-passenger vanity mirrors, front footwell lights, front and rear reading lights, lighting for storage compartment in the center console and six predefined selectable interior light designs for mood lighting and trim-strip illumination. The interior is meant for business. Tight, yet spacious, this crossover hugs each passenger and will take them on a ride or allow for great comfort with ease. The HiFi Sound System has seven speakers and 205-watt digital amplifier for optimal sound, which may be Bluetooth-connected to your device to make for musical accompaniment for whatever adventure is determined. 

The high-gloss black trim with Pearl Gloss Chrome highlight gives a modern “tech” appeal that will get noticed. A matte chrome exterior trim combines a sleek modern look with a sporty “off-road” kind of appeal that makes this model everything from ski-ready and forest-ready to errand-ready and carpool-ready.
